Yorick and Rumble. Don't have much Riven trouble with those two. Yorick for sustain and annoying poke, Rumble for.. well, Rumble.

Mundo.
Goes where he pleases so riven can't push him around.

1 word - Malphite.

Even without jungler's assistance, I can match Riven in top lane as Malph and after 6 I can burst her so she never stays in lane more than 3 minutes. It's pretty darn awesome.

Anyone with good lane sustain and some armor should crush Riven, she's almost useless without her abilities and they all deal physical damage.

She is a very strong fighter so the goal is to out-sustain her in the laning phase. Poke smartly to minimize the return damage and don't engage her until you know that you can kill her in 1 or 2 hits so her stun doesn't come into play.

Her moves let her cover roughly the same distance that a flash would only its not instant, so if you outrun her charge then she's out of fuel for the run home and its payback time!

Watch for her ult tho, it will increase the range and movement for all of her abilities.

Ryze works as does Rumble or kennen or vlad. Vlad has a rough start since he can't compete with QWE spam, but after 9, it's golden. Forgot Malphite. But the dude counters every melee.


Talon's real easy to beat as riven. After one or two silences early, just memorize his pattern. If you start the W animation at the moment he's gonna jump, he'll silence you but get stunned in the process, so he won't win trades.

About the teemo lovers, if you E to a teemo he will blind/auto you. Early this hurts. After double dorans (usually there's double ap in these games), it's a cakewalk. He blinds, your shield absorbs it and you trade favorably.

I am a very excessive Riven user and I must say Fiora is one character that does, indeed, get me off my game.
